Yeah Jacksonville is screaming for an attraction. We missed on Busch Gardens and Disney also if Im not mistaken. Not to metion running the "dirty movie people" away to California. Man this city has a history of being dumb as a brick. lol

I love the idea of a small to medium sized park here also. I guess what I wonder is do kids even have an interest in riding merry-go-round's and things like that nowadays? Merry go rounds, ferris wheels, ski ball...etc are great for nostalgia purposes but I would think a park would have to have something that offers a wide appeal for people.

I bet there's all kinds of market research data one can access on that. Different age groups like XYZ or ABC. With most of these parks it's likely about thrill rides, educational fare, or concerts. The only reason I set foot in Silver Springs in the last 5 years is because of a concert.

Six Flags, Wild Adventures, Cypress Gardens and Hard Rock Park all went into bankruptcy. Theme parks don't seem like profitable ventures.

Ladies and gentleman, Wayne Mooneyhan is back. He does not want the JTA land transfer to happen because he wants the property. O...M....G......

Of all the land available in Jacksonville, why would Mooneyhan want this parcel??

Right! I cant believe Jack Webb is entertaining him. That is definately a "pie in the sky" project that we no longer entertain the likes of. Mooneyhan has been given lip service for years. What does he want, us to reserve land for him? With his "promise" to building something? Does Mooneyhan even have any money?

For this type of reason, I am glad Jack Webb is leaving. Entertaining these types of projects have gotten us absolutely nowhere.

If the JRTC were consolodated, as adamantly expressed here, there would be plenty of room for Mooneyhan and no need for a huge land grant to the JTA.  IMO, that corner of DT would be ideal for a production studio etc. (if Mooneyhan can put his money where his mouth is).

If the council gives the JTA less land perhaps the transportation center will end up with a more compact urban design. Now I do not have any confidence in Mooneyhan but a touristy style film studio surrounded by shopping, entertainment , dining and near a transit hub would make sense in that area.  I am sure Lavilla School of the Arts would like it.

.... his websites are all offline.  Unless he is revamping them, I don't see any light at the end of that tunnel.
